There has not been much to say, since the foundation forms were finished and ready for concrete on June 29th, but did not pour until July 5th, with the holiday weekend, and the concrete company’s schedule. This happened because the excavation took longer to dig with all the rock. So as you see, one delay affects other subs, which can result in other delays.
Six concrete trucks later, we have a foundation that is 8″ thick, and between 10′ and 14′ high.
Next up is applying a peel and stick waterproof membrane, followed by 2″ of EPS foam and then a dimpled drainboard. We’ll backfill the front and sides of the home, and leave the back 58′ long wall until the floor is built to help keep the wall from moving from the pressure of the dirt and rock in the backfill. After that comes gravel inside the home, sub-rough plumbing, a radon vent, 2″ of EPS foam for under slab insulation, a 6 mil polyethylene water barrier, radiant heat tubing, and finally a concrete basement slab. Then framing in about 3 weeks.
Things should start moving along now, that we have a foundation to build on!
